Clare is an occupational therapist who has worked with children with learning difficulties, physical difficulties and mental health difficulties for over 15 years. Clare also works with children in the care system. Clare is an avid animal lover and gardener who believes that animals and nature are a wonderful therapeutic medium. Clare’s love of animals extends to the family’s two dogs, 14 rabbits, 20 chickens, 8 ducks, doves and racing pigeons!
